    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is the perfect consistency to hold on to pasta, don't omit the dryed thyme it is what makes this sauce and you may also add in a pinch cayenne pepper also if desired --- I'm a an extreme garlic-lover and I find that 1 heaping tablespoon is plenty for this recipe if you like an extreme garlic flavor then go ahead and use more! --- the recipe may easily be doubled but I suggest to keep the garlic at no more than about 1-1/2 tablespoons for a double recipe --- have plenty of mouthwash handy after this lol! :)

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan melt butter over medium-low heat.
    2. 2
      Add in the garlic and thyme; whisk for about 2 minutes (if your garlic is chopped instead of finely minced cook for 3 minutes watching closely not to burn the garlic).
    3. 3
      Add in flour and stir for 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Add in table cream and heavy whipping cream; bring to a boil and simmer over low heat, whisking constantly until thickened, about 2 minutes (do not allow to boil rapidly).
    5. 5
      Continue to simmer for about 2-3 minutes over low heat stirring continuously until bubbly and thickened.
    6. 6
      Mix in the Parmesan cheese; stir to melt the cheese (about 2 minutes).
    7. 7
      Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
    8. 8
      Serve over pasta and sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.
    9. 9
      *Note* This sauce is best if eaten right away as it will become thicker upon standing.

      yes this has good flavor but the instant thickening left this recipe with a low star rating. alfredo sauce is to be desired and enjoyed with every bite, not just the first. I even added extra liquid. sorry. this is not alfredo sauce.

      As always, Kittencal comes through! Had a craving for alfredo tonight, but didn't have any cream of any kind, only 1% milk. I figured I'd give it a shot, and it still came out very tasty - better than any 'low-fat' alfredo recipe I've tried. I just had to let it cook a little bit longer before it started to thicken. I was concerned that it would be runny, but it thickened up some when I added the cheese, and more as it cooled a bit. For company or special occasions, I'll make it as written, but for a quick week-night meal with what I have on hand. The 1% works just fine. Thanks, Kitten!
